Damn their eyes

Or rather, damn mine.

Hospital today, just a regular ophthalmology check-up, but unfortunately some bad news, I now have a macular traction in my right eye.

This is what I had in my right eye, I had surgery, a sodding great needle stuck in my eye. The procedure failed and I ended up with a split retina, limited close vision in my left eye and sod all distance vision.

And now it is happening with my right eye, oh bugger. I'm not bothered about the procedure, it is unpleasant but not painful, but if I lose the sight in my other eye I will by truly and seriously buggered.

From ophthalmology I went to audiology to get my hearing aids checked, and they replaced both as the tubes were getting stiff.

Hopefully I will be able to follow conversations better now, I was beginning to get like Alf Garnett's wife, always 2 conversations behind!

Oh poor you, anything to do with eyes isn't nice. Mr.T has to have a small op on one of his eyes soon. As for hearing, he has just started to wear the hearing aids after I badgered him, I got fed up with saying everything 3 or 4 time, lol

Sorry to hear your news. My DH has had his eyes lasered because oif glaucoma to reduce the pressure and has to have drops every night. I hope the procedure will be of some benefit this time. Catriona

Oh, Hester, this is awful news, I do hope that something can be done for you. Chris's brother has macular degeneration in both eyes and now can't drive. Thinking of you and sending hugs.

Any retribution for the damage last time? Didn't someone have to answer for the error?

It was 'just one of those things' I was unlucky, but I don't want to be unlucky again, that's for sure.

There's not a speck of fun in getting older is there, it just like owning an old car the repairs get worse and worse

Heart sore and head sore

I'm heart sore for the lovely John at Going Gently, he is grieving for the end of his marriage. I'm head sore from trying to deal ...
